    I am so mad at Nike that I am going to punish myself?

    10 of our 14 games in 2017 were on Disney networks... Disney kinda has the same open mind set as Nike, and I wonder how few Alabama fans and Tidefans posters we will have if Disney joins Nike in their stance.

    FWIW I get the stance vs Nike , just not the execution.

    I love Alabama but do not like Nike. I will pursue Alabama gear without the Nike symbol. In fact, I do not like advertising for other parties in general with the exception of the Crimson Tide (without other mfg trademarks where possible).

    I understand the desire to boycott. But I won't discard items which I paid dearly for in protest. Reminds me of the NFL fans who burned tickets in protest. The NFL wasn't harmed in any way by that act - only the people burning their tickets, which were paid for before receipt. Don't renew your season tickets and sell those in hand, but burn them? Might as well burn a pile of cash and pretend it is hurting the NFL.

    I fully support the right of individuals to do these things. I just choose to protest things that I consider worthy in other ways.

    I do not have any Bama Nike gear to throw away because I have never bought any Bama gear made by Nike. I have never bought anything Nike. My decision goes back before anyone ever hear of Colin Kaepernick. Non-Nike Bama gear can be hard to find but it is out there. New Balance for athletic shoes and Foot Joy for golf shoes.

    Whatís the purpose of bringing up this old article? To actually discuss it (already has been on here btw) or use it as a way to discuss current news relating to Nike?

    Bama needs to get out of the contract with Nike. I will not buy any more Bama stuff from Nike, and my family used to buy a lot. Iím surprised this issue had not been bigger until this point. I think itís going to be a big issue for the AD to deal with as more and more Bama fans refuse to support Nike

    I totally agree with B1G on this. When it wears out replace it with non-Nike Bama gear.
